My sweet baby turned 8 this weekend. I ask myself this same question every year, but where did the years go? How is she this big already?
We had a lovely party...my parents and our friends came over for dinner, cake and gifts!!! The menu was chosen by the birthday girl...meatloaf, ginger glazed baby carrots and stuffing. Yum!!!
I love this girl!! look she is almost as tall as me. Again, how is this happening? :o) She is changing so much and growing into a such a confident, beautiful, smart and independent girl.
These were not our only festivities....we let her pick what she wanted to do for her birthday and she chose a trip to NYC. Complete with a trip to the American Girls store, FAO Schwarz, a carriage ride in central park, dinner at the restaurant of her choice, Ellen's Stardust Diner. Needless to say we were all beat by the time we got home, but we sure had fun.
she got a new camera for her birthday so she was the one who took city pictures...so i will be loading her shots and letting her guest blog so that she can tell you all about her birthday in her own words.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
